While talking with the local news, the 38-year-old was open about the sexual harassment she said, “I’m an RJ, I’ve been a VJ and had some pleasant conversations with people ranging from a Maulana to Qandeel Baloch. So my aim has always been to understand instead of arguing,”

“When I started my career, we’d get fan mail and run into people on the streets. We didn’t know what becoming a target of trolls and victims of social media aggression felt like.”

“Women around us, who came from relatively less privileged households, were regularly molested, propositioned, given lesser money and odd jobs,” she said about the industry harassment.

While talking about personal life being discussed in the public she said, “Syra Yousuf handled her marriage being discussed in the papers very gracefully, but believe me, I won’t. I know we have bigger problems than my personal problems.”
